environment and offer robust sound and video quality. The LFD850 features
Immersive Sound Technology, which automatically adjusts volume levels based
on the acoustics in the room to provide a greater "sweet spot" and to

boosts the sound quality for a superior audio experience. With its

for additional knobs or buttons. It also provides red ambient lighting for
easy to use touch panel controls. Manufacturer's suggested retail prices
